"Winning the Thelma Hunt Research Grant has allowed me to pursue a line of research that I am passionate about both academically and personally. In addition, it has allowed me to gain experience that is critical for future academic success: conceptualizing my own research ideas, applying for a competitive award, and overseeing a research project all the way through to completion.

"My advice for other students is: Go for it! Every grant and scholarship application is an opportunity to practice important skills. Regardless of the outcome, applying for research awards such as the Thelma Hunt Research Grant can provide a platform to shape new ideas, and serve as a tool for gaining critical feedback on your projects.”
